*Give big thumbs up to people who wrote half-finished novellas*

*Goes back to drinking whiskey in the shower, sobbing over the novella I now have to finish*

Happy bday Sian!

Huh, news just in. It appears that a certain member of this community has been locked out of AW due to a technology malfunction. She said that it might be a particular mod yanking her tail because of this comment:


The best bit? The guessing will start soon, and there is one person who isn’t going to get any guessing points because she can’t log in. :ROFL:

Hahaha, suck it Coddiwomple! Imma gonna get more guessing points than you without even putting in any serious effort! Serves you right for being so smarmy all of the time. ;)

Hey hey I'm back! Did anyone miss me? Huh? Huh? Didja?

Yes, I managed to lock myself out of AW for my birthday. NOT for the reasons bandied about by our resident purveyor of vile, unfounded rumors and mutant fleas. Remember, if the dog opens his mouth, that your first hint that he’s lying.

(Norm. So sorry to dash all your hopes. I will be here for the guessing. Prepare to be flattened by a treasure from Greek antiquity. My bronze hooves will make of you a squeaking puppy pancake.)

Happy Birthday, Sian! :PartySmil :Cake: :PartySmil

Can we make it four in a row? Someone? Anyone?

Hey guys! I'm still waiting on submissions from two people. I'll put up the guessing thread once I hear something from them.


Happy birthday Sian!!!

Not that I only know how to sing one note, but...

Happy birthday, Sian! :Cake:

So whose birthday is on the 24th? We're on a bit of a roll... :D

Incidentally...

I’m good, I’m good, lilyWhite! Stop staring, you’re making me nervous!

*wonders if lilyWhite can read minds. That means she knows about... crap. Think about kittens, Coddi. Or anything but ... Concentrate! Clear your mind!*

All right! I now have all the stories! I am starting to construct the Guessing Thread now.

Y'all, this is gonna be so good!

It should be up by the end of the day today!

*calls upon the eldritch energies of the All-Consuming Darkness, wreathing the moon in an aura of black magic, guiding it through Earth's orbit and positioning it directly between the sun and J.A.'s house*

*...promptly flops over and faints from magical overexertion, giving J.A. all the time she needs with no rush whatsoever*

Hey, I didn't even let anyone beta my story! Argh, methinks Jay has accidentally CC'ed my submission to Everyone before the time of the guessing begins.

Hmm... that means that if Everyone knows my story then nobody is allowed to guess it... and that means I win? Woohoo!!
